no one knows
when it comes
yet it is made
for everyone
some welcome it
some try to hide
but it catches
every single one
be it an infant
or an old man
be it a sinner
or even a saint
no one can
really escape
or avoid its
it is ultimate
of all things
final and fatal
death transforms
impure into pure
stress into relief
imprison into freedom
death brings life
for the one
who goes
and those
who left behind
live almost dead

P.S. - Last night in our lane, a kid aged just one year died. Death is so cruel yet it is certain and scheduled. No matter who is in it's way, it will pass on, ruining the one in front of it.
